which turns into law in their own countries. no. job to keep the country's most famous human rights activist behind bars despite him now being eligible for release. everyone here with the international welcome to the program. the world headlines for this hour police have dispersed in antigovernment protests and the very heart of ukraine's capital using tear gas and batons the local media say that forty people have been taken to hospital more than thirty at this point have now been arrested and here come the latest pictures from the scene more than a week in people have been calling for the president to resign. over the decision
3:02 am
to back out of a landmark trade deal with the e.u. the agreement was shunned by the ukrainian leader during a key summit in vilnius this week e.u. officials had hoped that kiev would strengthen its ties with the union the president's lack of movement on the issue as only infuriated the protesting crowds even more at ease alexia chefs he has to. it's really. grease. the spray. i think. and ukraine similar picture but looks are deceiving one number of european countries has been protesting against brussels policy ukraine is probably the only one where people are taking to the streets in tens of thousands to support the idea of your integration but you missed that yet we deserved to be in the europe but i sure you know the deal would have allowed us to get better education in europe but this was
3:03 am
not about being in the e.u. joining the union was not even on the table at the two hundred page blueprint of the agreement never said anything about a visa free regime when there really isn't a buzz that my wife can go to poland and buy a lot of food for just ten her even though which is just over a dollar that's twice as much as i can buy here at four hundred degrees. but the government was concerned that ukraine's domestic products would be swarmed by cheaper e.q. goods the worst case scenario could have been factory closures and a catastrophe unemployment rate and brussels was offering no compensation for any potential economic losses despite that ukraine's leadership has hinted a deal may still materialize in march next year that would mean a longer winter on the streets for the angry crowds were refusing to go home they want the president's head before they do the alexy rushes to r.t. reporting from kiev ukraine. and protesters believe the country's leadership hijacked the. futura by leaving the e.u.
3:04 am
trade deal on the scrapheap although warned that a hasty agreement could devastate the country's economy people still want it and as kiev looks to possibly revisit the agreement next year. scott has been finding out exactly what went so wrong this time. such a moment of power allowed access it's the ukrainian president viktor yanna cold which comes face to face with e.u. leaders for the first time since stalling on an historic trade deal the whole thing caught on camera. i think. it's. to me. it's clear that kiev decision to hold proceedings has rankled a huge lead is slowing ease of negotiations the e.u. since his outside influence we have to set aside short term political calculations
3:05 am
. and we may not give in to external pressure know the least from russia. because it says the financial deal also isn't large enough to prevent damage to ukraine's flailing economy of course neither ukrainian businesses nor the government have this amount of money or will have any time soon that's why ukraine is not ready to take responsibilities he's not capable of fulfilling yet knowing so where does this leave the situation ukraine's proposals for trilateral talks with russia were rejected by the. brussels finances may not allow them to increase the offer to kiev look at the european union massive ron paul employment throughout the course of the union they have a euro currency project which is a fiasco realistically the only thing the european union couldn't try to do is keep the blame storming anybody russia who cares because the european union is
3:06 am
ultimately falling apart at the seams so a you depart to vilnius contemplating what might have been despite courting president they simply seemed unable to offer him a deal that was tempting enough scots altie vilnius lithuania. as ukraine says no to the e.u. many within the block itself are saying no to its central policy young nationalists from belgium of invited a right wing movements from all across the continent to talk about how to fight liberalism and here at r.t. international we spoke to one political activist who's taking part in the we are the youth conference he says unemployment is the main driving force behind the rise of extremism. in italy greece spain and portugal finding a job is not that easy these days so of course people go looking especially young
3:07 am
people go looking and searching for solutions and i think that there are some movements that can give these solutions to the problems of today that the capitalist liberal system is have cost the government over the european union. totally don't care about jobs of young people so we can see that people are looking for alternatives we can not say that it's a nationalist revolution we can just see that it's very logical thing to happen it's a logical thing when people are left behind to this starts to organize themselves and they start to think why thanks for joining us here on r.t. international one ton of mowbray may have been a source for cia double agents media reports claim the secret service turned prisoners into spies and then sent them home with the promise of freedom safety for their families and millions in cash according to the claims an installation was
3:08 am
discovered near the controversial facility known as penny lane supposedly used for training recruits it said the cia chose the prisoners considered the most dangerous for the mission now there's been no concrete proof provided for the claims however former pentagon security analyst michael maloof says such double agents would have no way to go back to. back in their own countries. i think that any exposure at any time like this of any secret program if there is one is always damaging. the question then is what is the relevance you send these guys back what tangible basis do you have and in the follow up and actually recruiting and i think that's a serious question but to even have a revelation that such a program might even exist it could be very damaging to these individuals and i doubt that those who are in guantanamo now would really be able to go back without
3:09 am
some suspicion being cast upon them i didn't want tom obey them all guilty you are the better your chances to get out as a double agent that's the claim of colonel morris davis a former guantanamo bay prison chief prosecutor. i would assume like in many organized crime cases sometimes you got to make a deal with the devil to try to get someone further up the food chain i can tell you call some consternation from my prosecutors because in some cases we are asking them to prosecute people for war crimes and there's a way that you want to prosecute the lieutenant at this level but we've let is colonel go which created this kind of paradox of guantanamo where if you were a big enough fish you potentially got a free ticket home and a wad of cash to take with you if you work you could potentially get prosecuted and if you're in the lower category the people who have been cleared are still at guantanamo and the detention so the more guilty you are may have been better for you. are still to come here want to see the miracle of life we meet the palestinian

3:13 am
because it because it was night time for in the morning even the best even the best soldiers. are going to make mistakes this is this whole idea of brotherhood and author. and camaraderie in this sense it was in this context that has absolutely no place. thank you for joining us here on the international grain is trying to silence human rights activist not below it a job by keeping him in prison that's according to amnesty international the campaign has most of his two year and is now legally eligible for release but authorities there are in no rush to set him free an appeal has been in jail now since august of last year for participating in antigovernment protests critics say
3:14 am
only outside influence will get bahrain to change course. the government will release him if and only if there is significant pressure from behind allies meaning the united states of the united kingdom. in absence of that pressure i think the government will still trying to come in prison in line with their campaign of you know trying to prevent any sort of dissent or create any sort of safe space for dissent we saw deeley videos of nighttime bombardments of villages in behind with tear gas these are areas where there's no protests whatsoever going on the government just comes in and fires massive amounts of tear gas to punish citizens for expressing dissent or protests so we're not seeing the use of tear gas and behind to disperse violent rioters as much as we're seeing it to punish as a weapon of collective punishment we've seen the government try to hold the so-called national dialogue with the opposition but you can't really have this dialogue when there's there's so many political prisoners and representatives of the opposition the major players in the opposition in prison. and we've got much
3:15 am
more crackdown on dissent on our web site r.t. dot com including the story about one human rights activist who went to the police to follow the case but wound up getting arrested instead. for the meantime here is a tricky problem how do you start a family if your husband's in jail with a number of palestinian women have found a way by smuggling. out of israeli prisons they were driven to the desperate measure amid fears they'd be too old for motherhood by the time their partners were released. reports. lydia molly calls her son the miracle baby the apple of her eyes he was born against all odds. must win the fact that most was born has given us hope he's everything to us in the end we won despite all the obstacles for us he is the ultimate victory mushed was born despite his father's
3:16 am
absence a dull career now her mom is him israeli prison where he's been sentenced to twenty five years for murder lydia was afraid she'd no longer be able to have children by the time he got out and so instead of waiting for him she did the next best thing and arranged for his sperm to be smuggled out for the first time i went to visit my husband with his new son the soldiers went crazy when they saw the baby like i was carrying a bomb they started asking questions like how come you have a baby smuggling sperm from prison is gaining popularity in the palestinian world but first the community must approve after this happened the procedure is quite straightforward the first thing they have to get to see that they have a sample from that. they get if they get a sample we ask of the woman wife of the prisoners to begin with they have to fiercely give you live from here side until fifty beginning with the from here husband's side the is. clear that this will belong to this woman's as
3:17 am
one sample can survive for up to forty eight hours before being frozen five. to five years is three months pregnant her husband summer is serving an eighteen year sentence. this is i haven't had children for eleven years my husband was in prison all this time the first time in prison his wife got pregnant she basically gave hope to all of us and. it's a puzzle for the israeli prison service in a mission statement they insist that security arrangements and inmates interactions with the visitors are carefully. monitored which makes objects exchange much more difficult they food evolved to prevent any smuggling of any kind and none of the people we interviewed would give details of how the sperm is smuggled out from under the watchful eye of prison guards there is almost no physical contact between security prisoners and their families but five babies have been born this way and
3:18 am
eighteen women are pregnant. bringing a baby into this work in spite of the fact that his father is in the jews now in this prison is a form of resistance. force here with bank. by so joining us here on this saturday a wave of earthquakes in the state of texas has triggered suggestions they were man made independent studies have shown that injecting explosive fluids into oil and gas wells known as fracking could be the culprit here now the latest are rubble was a three point six magnitude quake in fact the strongest there in several years and the process is allowing texas to free up its hard to reach resources and is therefore proving quite a draw for the big oil and gas corporations and one former mayor from texas calvin tillman he believes harming the environment for cash could ultimately have irreversible are facts. some pretty good at it shows the injection wells which all of the fracking noise is deposited in they have been linked to these
3:19 am
earthquakes and i think you have to be ghoulish to not think that all of things going on underground is going to have you know the long term stability of the earth at the legislative level the oil and gas industry has a significant influence probably more in the state of texas than they do in any other state in the united states around the world the impacts that is has i mean you know by the time that you. hear the noise and have the earthquakes and smelling the odors in your water as methane it is too late at that point and so you know the damage that is that is going to be non is going to go on for many many many years and it's not something that you're going to be able to undo. some of the international headlines in brief starting with cairo which has been shaken by antigovernment protests at least eighty six people arrested security forces using tear gas the crowds using stones demonstrations for the days of defiance of

a new law which bans gatherings without government consent the recent arrests of many activists also adding fuel to the fire of public anger over the military's grip on power. to mali now whether to reg separatist group has said it's ending a cease fire that was agreed upon with the government in june this following clashes between the government forces and demonstrators it's made protests in the capital bamako on thursday the people demanded french troops leave the country powers is maintaining more than three thousand soldiers in mali following a joint operation with local troops against the torah reg rebels in january. police in scotland say there are numerous casualties ofter a helicopter crashed into a packed pub in glasgow one hundred twenty people were in the building when the police chopper with three people on board impacted the roof several still said to be trapped inside the pub at this point we don't understand exactly what caused the
3:21 am
crash. now germany makes some of the world's fastest cars not surprising really when they have the world's fastest roads speeds on parts of the autobahn network dictated simply by how far you can push the pedal to the metal. all of the reports there's one big foot right now waiting to stomp on the brakes when you go past the sign this is one twenty with a line through it the gloves are off baby you can drive you can drive really governor is off your back in germany and you can drive the mayor says drive as fast as you walk. it's the country. of the world for its. unlimited speeds germany could be said to fall foul of regulations that drivers of the country's high performance cars are limited to a maximum of around one hundred fifty kilometers an hour the planned. stated with
3:22 am
a device that automatically applies the brakes whenever a car exceeds the speed limit in the area the idea is to increase highway safety thirty thousand people every year roads that can manufacture is the notion that they slow down. statistics. accidents etc. on the autobahn this is on the streets offside this is already very limited. and the so it's a clear indicator of the european commission overtaking what should the masses. is that many of those rules being made by the commission not being subject to democratic accountability in the european parliament and that seems to me is is the source of a lot of the frustration and tensions in countries
3:23 am
a decision on whether to move ahead with the idea is expected in the. german drivers however have already made up their minds that it will kill the joy of driving. i am against speed limit it will cost us jobs but oh to be will not allow that to happen people will fall asleep at that speed the whole reason we built beautiful roads was to drive on them properly it's going to be a tough one for the e.u. to convince germans that their speed should be in the hands of brussels. i was dxed the germans. to the french or roast beef to the british. not things are they going to want to give up control of easily. controllable. and about as old from me for the moment here on our team to national the next its people have ellen on the money but if you're in the u.k. brace yourself as george galloway is coming your way flying on his trusty sputnik
3:24 am
thanks for joining us. one member of st petersburg's legislative assembly is trying to get child beauty pageants banned in russia starting with his hometown you know i couldn't agree more with this gent on this issue these kids beauty pageants not only put a ton of pressure on children to achieve something absolutely pointless but they're also a pedophile's dream come true and are well very very creepy but why are they creepy that's because they like it or not human beauty is related to see. x. so when you try to make children beautiful and wear bathing suits and let's just say active poses yeah that's called sexualizing children and it's disgusting although adult beauty pageants are also sort of stupid at least the participants are all adults so see it because beauty pageants are obviously related to sexuality
3:25 am
should be able to participate in them until you reach the age of consent in your country otherwise it is just a pedophile buffet but that's just my opinion. did you know the price is the only industry specifically mentioned in the constitution and. that's because a free and open press is critical to our democracy albums. in fact the single biggest threat facing our nation today is the corporate takeover of our government and across several we've been hijacked by handful of transnational corporations that will profit by destroying what our founding fathers once all just my job market and on this show we reveal the big picture of what's actually going on in the world we go beyond identifying the problem to try rational debate and
3:26 am
a real discussion critical issues facing america have fun feel ready to join the movement then walk a little bit but. if you're thinking about an alcoholic drink associated with russia it's probably not going to be one that springs into your head but they've been making it here on the black sea coast for more than two thousand kids and there's an industry which really can compete with the best the rest of the world has to offer i've come to meet some of the people growing the greats and to see if i can find out the secret to the perfect place. for. my.
3:27 am
ice. with the economic down in the final. and the rest. is really. low in welcome to the money where the business of russia is business i'm people of russia's economy continues to expand though just barely this is prompted the government to rearrange budget priorities you continue down the path of economic reform on top of this ukraine is back in the news in
3:28 am
a very big way and talks with iran move the oil price. to discuss these issues and more i'm joined by dmitry babich he is a political analyst with voice of russia radio station we also have jacob now he is the chief economist with morgan stanley russia and we also have a bowler he's a chief economist at deutsche bank russia the state of russia's economy flatlining well i mean look we've had we've had maybe three disappointments this year i think when you sort of put it on the table one is growth we all know about that investment being negative but but other sources of growth also are not not far on all cylinders we've seen also the current account decline it's not so much on the trade side but it's more in services and income it's gone down to under two percent g.d.p. and we've also seen inflation this autumn pick up again despite having a pretty good harvest so that's that's that's three pieces of of unfortunate
3:29 am
economic news but i. i think actually there's a pretty good strategy out there i think that we shouldn't over interpret the past and use soap to go through them first of all the growth a lot of the driver of the slowdown has been the government putting the brakes on on government spending and that process is now over so i think the slowdown in investment will pick up a little bit now and that will help growth pick up a little bit next year on inflation i think we have a central bank there is building credibility it's got a difficult inflation target next year but it is we think possible to deliver it with a prudent budget keeping military growth under control with a good harvest with a utility. freeze or cap on price increases so on growth we see it being better on inflation we seeing it be it being better i think that the biggest change maybe on the.
